Smart-UPS SMT750i: how to turn off the LCD display

This was originally posted on APC forums on 5/7/2011


I think that the LCD display of the SMT750i should automatically turn off when I'm not pressing one of the UPS buttons,
in this way it would be similar to the previous SUA750i

Is it possible to set this configuration?
I've tried using the smart-agent (Internet Explorer) and using APC PowerChute Business Edition Console 9.0.1
but I don't know how to set it.

P.S.
When I first turned on the UPS and the Output was still set to OFF the UPS was turning off the display after one minute
since the last button was pressed. I would like to obtain the same thing but ... when the UPS is working.


Best regards,
Daniele

Although I found out how to do this, I have to tell you that it is different to how those instructions advise for the "Smart-UPS 1500":
1. Hold down both the "Mute" and "Display" button to go into configuration mode: where each configurable item will be shown individually on the screen and flash.
2. Cycle through the options with the Display button, change an option with the Mute button.
3. The option "LCD" will flash along with the Load Capacity wedge icon: empty means off and full means the LCD backlight will remain on permanently
4. To configure it to turn off press Mute so the wedge icon is empty
5. Press nothing until the UPS unit realises a period of inactivity to exit the config menu
6. After some seconds the display should switch off (except for the green power light)
What it doesn't tell you is that this is not a permanent option, as once any button is pressed to get the screen back online the option immediately reverts back to assume the LCD should always remain on, which means the process must be repeated. However, in order for the option to be recognised the process of first turning the LCD on (selecting the wedge icon so it is full, in config mode), then exiting config mode, repeating the step a second time around, but this time once again with the wedge icon empty, will turn the LCD off.
I find this to be quite cumbersome and unexpected. Once a setting is entered I only expect my interaction with the config menu to reverse it, or otherwise.

@i picKed a winna

I hope APC will release a firmware upgrade.

Now the LCD screen "slide show" is quite annoying.
It would be nice to turn it off when not needed.
